ISBN #1-59426-364-7
Bad things don't happen in Mourningkill, a sleepy little village at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. That all changes when two young girls become lost in the woods, setting off a series of events that shatter the peaceful illusion. For beneath the quiet calm of Mourningkill lies a dark secret, and an age-old prophecy about to be revealed.

The "Mad Monk of Mourningkill" was a Rasputin-like character who centuries ago passed down a legacy of death and vengeance on future generations of the small town. Unbeknownst to the local citizens of Mourningkill, a secret society of "Keepers" thrives in a labyrinth of tunnels beneath the ruins of Weeping Stone. From there they send out changelings into the community—firstborns with the power to seek out their enemy through sexual domination until the final prophecy comes to pass..."when one changeling shall rise above the rest and emerge the victor in battle of brother against brother."

When Detective Alex Scott discovers a strange connection with one of the missing young girls, his life becomes intimately entwined with the girl’s mother, Kim Cross. Together they search for answers to an unusual birthmark shared by both Alex and Kim’s daughter, unaware that their search will lead them into the clutches of a serial killer intent on destroying them both. Only then does Alex discover the truth about his birth, and his role in fulfilling the mysterious prophecy.
